FULLY DECARBONIZING THE NEW ENGLAND ELECTRIC SYSTEM: IMPLICATIONS FOR NEW RESERVOIR HYDRO

BY BRUCE PHILLIPS

New England, New York and several eastern Canada provinces have all adopted ambitious goals to reduce greenhouse gases (GHG) and deploy clean energy with the ultimate objective of fully decarbonizing the regional energy system by roughly mid-century or shortly after. 

This whitepaper addresses how best to achieve that goal in the electric sector and, more specifically, assess the viability of the 100% renewables pathway to full decarbonization without new reservoir hydro as suggested by some industry observers. You can also view Bruce’s presentation here.
